Description

Get In (the 2nd) Line by Robert Sanderl is a challenging and groovy multipercussion solo with advanced rudimental snare drum components inspired by the "second line" style of drumming from New Orleans. Second line music come from the funeral processions in New Orleans where the life of the deceased is celebrated in parade form with music while the mourners accompany the casket to the cemetery. 

Get In (the 2nd) Line challenges the performer to maintain a fluid and stylistic feel while executing advanced rudimental skills and drum set-inspired coordination between the hands and foot.

Reviews

This solo provides insight into the traditional New Orleans funeral-procession style of drumming where the life of the deceased is celebrated in parade form while the mourners accompany the casket to the cemetery. This 97-measure solo reflects the development of early 20th-century drum set performance — continuing even up to today. The snare drum sticking is clearly notated, and advanced rudimental sticking technique is a requirement for performance. The tempo remains quarter-note equals 110 throughout. In his prefatory remarks, composer Rob Sanderl describes the tuning of his 5 X 14-inch snare drum as well as his tuning of the 18-inch bass drum.

This could be an effective solo concert snare drum/bass drum presentation for a percussion recital. Congratulations to Sanderl for his creativity in composing this historically influenced work.
